    Bruce Pearl

    I just read a lengthy interview done with him by Gator Country about the state of the SEC and the Tennessee program; his passion for the game and its history; where he thinks basketball in the SEC is heading, etc. Anyway, all I can say is damn him all the hell How are you supposed to hate a rival coach that is so respectful, sincere, passionate and easy to like? Pearl and Donovan are pretty much the exact opposite in their interaction via the media or otherwise with their open and mutual respect, etc opposed to the way Spurrier and Fulmer fueled the hate in the Florida-Tennessee rivalry in their sport. Think in hoops it is destined to also develop into a great rivalry, but maybe not with the hate the football rivalry has because of the coaches involved and how they set the tone. Pearl is good for the SEC as well as Tennessee.

    Can't believe I just typed this about a Tennessee coach and don't even regret it LOL

    By the way, this quote was funny...
    “It was my goal to become the least popular coach in the SEC in two years and here you are, telling me I’m popular,” said Pearl with a laugh. “Am I doing something wrong? Tell me. I’ll change. I can do it!”

    Re: Bruce Pearl

    Bruce Pearl is a great coach for the Tennessee program, because he's embraced the other programs at the school as well. He gets it, and he does indeed know how to be unpopular. Pearl is just like Noah... you like them if they are on your side, but both are rather annoying. Let's see if he can get UT to an Elite 8.
